Until 10 September 2017
Van Gogh Museum, Amsterdam

This summer the Van Gogh Museum presents Van Gogh, Rousseau, Corot: In the Forest, an opportunity to experience lesser-known paintings by Vincent van Gogh, of woodland views and landscapes, alongside works by established French landscape painters such as Théodore Rousseau and Camille Corot.

The exhibition explores an underappreciated side of Van Gogh's practice, and shows how his perception of nature was partly shaped by artists from the Barbizon School. These innovative painters captured nature by means of a characteristically loose style, demonstrated in their depictions of the Forest of Fontainebleau, located near the village of Barbizon just south of Paris.

Van Gogh, Rousseau, Corot: In the Forest comprises 34 works from the Van Gogh Museum and The Mesdag Collection, as well as three exceptional loans: Sunset at Montmajour, the most recently discovered of Van Gogh's paintings, Pollard Birch from the Van Lanschot Collection and a painting from a private collection, Windswept Trees near Loosduinen, in which Van Gogh's own fingerprints are visible.
